The Issues - Women's Rights 

Paula knows that all families are stronger when we support and invest in women. Paula will be a fierce defender of women’s rights. Every woman must be allowed to be in control of her own body and have autonomy when it comes to their reproductive health care decisions, including abortion. Paula will be a chamption in the State Senate for guaranteed access to safe and affordable abortions. 


As your State Senator, Paula will fight for:

  • Affordable childcare, paid family and medical leave, fair pay

  • Protections from pregnancy discrimination and workplace harassment

  • Increased investments in child care programs to make childcare more affordable for working families 


Paula believes hard-working parents should be able to afford childcare and go to work or pursue further education or training to improve their skills. Increasing funding for childcare programs must be a priority and will pave the way for workforce participation and educational opportunities in order to secure better, higher quality employment opportunities for all.

Paula is proud to have the support of Planned Parenthood Advocates Mar Monte, NARAL Pro-Choice California, National Women's Political Caucus, California Women's List, and the California Legislative Women’s Caucus.
